Celtic loses but advances in UEFA Champions League
December 5th, 2007 7AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Scottish champion Celtic fell to defending champion AC Milan, 1-0, in their final Group D game on Tuesday but advanced to the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League, beginning in February, thanks to Benfica's 2-1 win at Ukraine's Shakhtar Donetsk.

If Shakhtar had won, it would have tied Celtic for second place and won the tiebreaker to advance to the round of 16 along with group leader AC Milan. Instead, Benfica overtook Shakhtar for third place and will move into the round of 32 of the UEFA Cup. Shakhtar's European season is finished.

Paraguayan Oscar Cardozo scored both goals for Benfica in the first 22 minutes. Italian Cristiano Lucarelli reduced Benfica's lead to one goal in the 30th minute.

In Milan, Filippo Inzaghi broke the record for career goals in Europe with his 63rd goal in the win over Celtic. He shared the record with German Gerd Mueller.
